Pierre Hermé

4 out of 5 stars

Time Out says

Generously sized ganaches, crunchy nougat, velvety truffles… Any attempt to describe Pierre Hermé’s products unfailingly degenerates into a rapturous ode to gluttony. Hermé donned his first chef’s hat at the age of 14, and trained with such renowned artisans as Gaston Lenôtre before opening his own shop on Rue Bonaparte in 2001. Though you could buy anything and walk away happy, the macaroons are a standout: try the pink macaroon, concocted from an Iranian recipe that balances sweet and bitter flavours to perfection.

If you're suitably inspired (and of course you will be) you can learn from the master and create your own macarons at this masterclass
